How can I start?
Well, first I must say those were the best days of my life, not just the Anthrocon, but the whole adventure I lived in the month of July 2015, probably the best month I've experienced and that will be truly unforgettable.
My journey began in Merida, Mexico, and continued in Quintana Roo, in those so beautiful beaches, probably the most beautiful in the world (including the famous beach of Cancun).
In that first weekend, I had an excellent companium, Roni (my boyfriend), two very good friends I've rarely seen (Vook and Licos), hey, well, actually I was surrounded by great friends (Oselotti, Andy Snowleopard, Ruakuu and Targus)
After this great weekend, Oselotti, Andy, Targus, Ruakuu and me, went to Pittsburgh, where we find Salmy and Moof there. Salmy has been a friend of me for many years and just on this trip I had the honor of meeting him in real life. Moof is another good friend who has visited me twice before in Mexico.
The first day we went to Pittsburgh Zoo and to a mall. The second, which was the first day of the Anthrocon, I started meeting good guys, and met Physics, a cheetah from Hong Kong who is quite nice, with whom I had a great time; several boys who got to know within the headless zone. In the rave I had fun enough, I'm not use to dance, but on the event I got it from the energy of the place, letting me go and having fun to the fullest.
I started my second Anthrocon day in panels with Uncle Kage, that person is pretty funny and so hilarious. I went to the dealer's den, where I spent a lot of money, just looked how my wallet was becoming increasingly thinner, but I bought many treasures. Perhaps something that happens all the first time furries go to a furry convention. I was at the Fox Amoore concert I love his music, he and his band are very good in live. And I ended my day with another night rave. Very funny.
The third day was the fursuit parade, never before had I felt so happy as when we went out and all the people around us applauded, they were very happy, and the kids asked for hi fives. It was an experience I hadn't ever lived before, perhaps this will repeat in another moment, but I don't think I could feel the same as that first time.
That day also saw Sammy, Friske Crisps, and I could talk better with Physics, and I met Panda named Panda, he's a great guy.
I'm skipping many moments, because otherwise this would become a novel, and nobody would read it.
The evening of the third day of AC I didn't go to rave, I preferred to spend it in the bar with good friends, at Tonic's. I had a great time there.
I pause here to discuss something I could realize in me and it caught my attention. I am a very shy guy, that's normal on me, also in furmeets I usually be very quiet, and I think that's not so nice for people who wants to know me. The trip to the convention made me very nervous, because now I had to speak English that is not my native language to socialize. But when I needed to socializing at Anthrocon, I felt more confident, it was easier to talk to a stranger, I just talked. My shyness was reduced several points.
The fourth day was amazing, I participated in the fursuit games, I had a great time, I had an excellent team (orange team!!), It was very funny, and I thought "this would be even more perfect if I my team won first place" and so it was !!
Something I love about the American people is that they are very euphoric, plus it seems that all the time are screaming, exploiting their emotions and become a bomb, they are very intense, is not something that happens with people of my country, who I also appreciate so much, despite Mexicans have a reputation for being always in parties, but not as expressive as northamericans are. That euphoria was the one I liked so much when they announced that my team was winning. I retain the trophy and the bar of my team as a great treasure.
I hope someone can share me pictures of that event, I haven't found anywhere.
I went to bid for a pic that I liked so much to the art show, and yes, I took it.
Nostalgia on the last day came when I began to see the convention center increasingly empty, many furries with suitcases in hand, Physics who said goodbye with great enthusiasm, and I almost tears out. Uncle Kage saying that we would be until next year.
But still he continued fun at night; my original plan were to go to the "dead dog", proved to be very boring, except for a game that was improvised with a balloon, and there were many furries having a great time with a simple balloon until it burst. I left there and I met more friends, the cherry on the cake was listening to Fox Amoore improvising on the piano from the hotel and all furrys singing with him the songs he played. Beautiful moment.
It was a wonderful event, I'll never forget, and I will gladly be back on American to attend more conventions.
The adventure continued, because there on Pittsburgh we rented a car and drove to Washington DC, we visited several museums. Then back to Puerto Aventuras, Mexico. And the following weekend I went to the Furry Summer in the Mexico City, where I participated in the art exhibition.
